Welcome to September Another busy month coming up, with a batch of Walker Broad and solo gigs and work started on the new solo CD "Every Penny Of The Deal" *** New CD Started and a Competition *** At the weekend I started work on the long awaited new studio CD, with a recording of a punchy / pacey slide guitar instrumental, played on my 1939 Kalamazoo KG-14. I'm planning on including a range of tracks on the CD some strictly solo, some with special guests and the best couple of recording from this years tour of France as bonus tracks. Now here's the competition bit, being an instrumental I don't have a an obvious title for it from the lyrics, so I thought I'd throw it open to the expertise of the members of my wider mailing list. Just before the weekend Sandy (singer from Walker Broad) videod me playing a prototype of the tune as I cleaned up the Kalamazoo in preparation for the recording, she included it on her blog here: http://bit.ly/1u62bPU , so pop over and have a listen then send in your suggestions for titles by email. The prize will be an mp3 of the pre-mastered version of the track, plus a copy the CD when finished and a thank you mention on the CD cover. Let see what you can come up with! *** Southsea Folk & Roots Weekend *** Southsea Folk & Roots returns this month on the weekend of the 27th and 28th of September, I'm sure JR will be sending out a details email soon but I'd just though I'd mention I (Andy Broad) will be opening for Aynsley Lister Band on the Sunday evening and Walker Broad will be appearing on the Saturday afternoon.
